A visit to downtown Amesbury offers feelings of yesteryear: quaint shops and restaurants line a downtown crossed by brick sidewalks and bisected by the flowing Pow Wow River. That small town feel mixes with big world flavors, as restaurants of all types have found their home within walking distance of so much; carving out niches that have made Amesbury a must-visit for those eager to offer their taste buds an experience. The Amesbury Chamber of Commerce is certainly biased, so we teamed up with the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism for their My Local MA campaign to show you just how special our restaurants are.
